Live Chess Players Please Leave Your Cockiness at the Door

I do not usually play blitz chess.  Sometimes, though, when multiple-day time limit chess is slow, I wander in and try it out.  I am pretty much a beginner at blitz chess just becuase I have not played that often.  So it is humorous when people on live chess with ratings close to mine tell me that I suck.  Really?  Why is your rating so low then?  Maybe you should be playing more challenging players which are more representative of what you think your abilities are.  On the other hand, if you think that you have some constructive critisism for me, play a slow game with me and bring up some specific examples of ways to improve my game.  Jesse420, your profile saying that you are a stoner/beach bum indicates why you are not as good as you think.  You are off at the beach all the time killing brain cells.  If I make a blunder because I am not used to blitz, that is not evidence that what you say is correct.  GscStako, go practice?  How am I supposed to practice blitz except to play it?

In conclusion, don't be a jerk.  Just have fun.
